The Nyalenda ‘B’ Ward in Kisumu County has commenced a program that will help people acquire their birth certificates and identity cards.
The process which is aimed to be bi-quarterly and bi-annually will see the area residents get with ease Birth Certificates and the National Identity Cards for the people living within the ward.
Our people normally face this problem of taking too much time at the office of registry to seek for these documents and when they go to the Registrar of Persons it takes them too much time, that’s why we bring for them these services here says Bernard Nyadida Ward Manager.
The Birth Certificate drive attracted several residents from Nyalenda and its neighboring wards hoping to get the service and receive their birth certificates without having to go through the long process at the Registry Office.
We thank our ward representative for bringing for us this services here, we normally have headaches when following up on these documents at the registry of persons and even the application is more than what is charged here todayMary Atieno resident Naylenda B ward who was in the process to apply for her daughter’s certificate.
The Office of the Ward Representative partnering with other offices including the Registrar of Persons, the Office of Assistant Chief and the Community Health Workers made it possible for members of the community to acquire birth certificates.
Process had started earlier in the week making accessible forms that would be required in their offices situated in Katuoro. They also coordinated with the Community Health Workers and the Chief’s office to mobilize interested individuals to use the opportunity providedsays Lesly Omondi Personal Assistant to the County Representative.
This comes after the office had done a successful drive that saw over 750 children get their birth certificates within one month and a half.
He said it was the Ward Representative’s mandate to provide these basic services to the residents of Nyalenda.
From the last exercise we realized that it will be very easy for the county representatives through their office to mobilize and bring these services closer to the people they serve.Nyadida added
This initiative came after the Ward Administrative realized that many people do not have the required documents which makes it difficult for them to apply for the jobs advertised in the county.
The program is planned to run for the five years hoping that the people who will be taking office next will continue with the spirit of service provision to the community.
